Former Monroe high star Ricardo Lockette says he's locked and loaded for his second season in the NFL. The Seattle Seahawks' wide receiver was a late addition to the roster last season and quickly made an impact scoring his first NFL touchdown against the 49ers.
But Lockette says he's not satisfied just yet and has been putting in a lot of work over the summer not just here in Albany but all over the country with some of the best receivers in the league.
He says his role on the team has grown and he's moved up the depth chart. Seahawks coaches have come to Lockette saying they expect big things out of him this season.
Lockette said "I'm pretty much going to stretch the field and play a whole lot more. Somebody you can depend on third and one, second and ten, someone to stretch the field. When they start to play off someone to catch the 5 or 6 yard slant and turn it into a touchdown. I look forward to that opportunity and making my team, my family and Albany proud."
Lockette will leave for Seattle on Thursday morning.
